The CIA staff are amazing..

I love that the students here talk about food, make food, eat food, think about food, and watch food TV. Its a common passion. Also, the campus is absolutely immaculate, and the staff is amazing. Their credibility, industry experience, and knowledge are exceptional. I also love how well the CIA suits me.

I wanted to be a great chef, so I came to the CIA

I took my first cooking class at the CIA when I was seven years old. I remember saying that I would attend the CIA one day. Since then, I have devoted myself to making my dream a reality. If you want to be a great lawyer you go to Harvard Law School. I wanted to be a great chef, so I came to the CIA
